The funny thing is, this isn't the first time something like that has happened at church in the short 3.5ish years we've been married. A couple years ago, in our first ward as a married couple, Sacrament Meeting ended - I think there was a Farewell that day or something - so everyone's just kind of standing around talking for a few minutes, when - out of the blue - we hear an older man in the choir shout, "WE'RE GOING TO SAY THE PRAYER NOW!!!!!!!!!!" **SHUDDER!**
Oh my gosh, those are SUCH AWKWARD, CRINGE-WORTHY MOMENTS! I mean, I get it -- it's annoying when you're trying to start choir practice or class while there are people talking... but isn't there a better way to go about it? Is it really necessary to YELL AT THE TOP OF YOUR LUNGS for everyone to pipe down?! I can just imagine the insides of both of these old men during those moments... their blood boiling - like a can of soda being shaken, when all of the sudden POP! THEY CAN'T HANDLE IT FOR A SECOND LONGER AND HAVE TO FREAK OUT. Hahahahaha. Oh man. Awkward moments. Gotta love/hate 'em.
